Intellij : How to add @author comment to every new class


In this tutorial, we will learn how to add @author comments to every new class that we create. We can achieve it using either of the following two solutions

Solution 1: 

Automatically add @author comments to every new class using Files and Code Templates

Open File -> Settings -> Editor -> File and Code Templates -> Includes

Click on Includes. Under File Header, enter the following comments text


 * @author ${USER}

 * @Date ${DATE} 


Intellij - add @author comments

Solution 2:

Autocompletion of @author

Open File -> Settings -> Editor -> Live Templates

  • Select Java and then click on + button
  • In Abbreviation, enter @a
  • In template text, enter the following comments


         * @author ${USER}

         * @Date ${DATE} 


  • In option, Expands with select SPACE
Intellij - Autocompletion @author

You can simply add the @author comments by typing @a and then click SPACE


  1. I need to contact you Mr Asif. Can you share your email address please ?

  2. please leave your email address here , I will contact you back

  3. but on auto completion the ${USER} should change into a username but what i get is ${USER} on auto completion is that the intended purpose?
